Regarding “Downtown library would be a bold move” (Letters to the Editor, June 7): No city funds should pay for this. If some Silicon Valley fat cat wants to finance this, fine, but taxpayers already contribute to the library. – Steve Ly


Letter to the Editor: Consulting group offers online town hall

Community Insights Group is the team of “tech-savvy volunteers” who offer “an effective online polling program the city should take a hard look at,” as noted in the Town Crier’s May 31 editorial (“More public engagement for Hillview”).

We’re flattered by the compliment and in total agreement about the need for public engagement in community decisions, yet we can help our city do more. We see ourselves as facilitators of community collaboration who help create decisions community members can support.

Letter to the Editor: Downtown library would be bold move

Some residents are advocating to move the Los Altos Library to the downtown triangle.

For several years, I was on the Los Altos Library Commission. I will never forget the sad day the commissioners were told that our library shelves were filled to capacity. We were out of space! Books had to be discarded to make room for new purchases.

This has been going on for several years. It’s time to get a library to fit our needs.
